we have stayed at this hotel many times, the veiw the serve the free wine are all excellent, within easy walking distance to dana point eateries and attractions, watch for special bargains on their website, best bargains always during the week for seniors, quick trip from la for a great rest stop during the week, the rooms oceanside have the most spectacular veiw, they even have bikes to borrow, the rooms are great, and very comfy, great for a romantic get away

Our recent stay at the Blue Lantern was the perfect escape. From the moment we checked in, we felt welcomed and at home. The space is beautiful and the room pristine. We immediately turned on our in-room fireplace and tucked in for the night. When we woke up in the morning, the views out of our window were a dream. Downstairs a full breakfast was waiting for us, complete with a cup of coffee and newspaper. This was the absolute perfect vacation spot for two city-dwellers looking for a way to unwind, sleep in, and relax in a serene spot. This will certainly not be the last time we stay at the Blue Lantern Inn and I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for an escape from your day to day stresses.

Very nice boutique hotel with a spectacular view. I would recommend this hotel for a couple that would like to have a very quiet time where you would like to be away from the world. The view is spectacular with room 206 having a small balcony that overlooks the water. There are some trees that obstruct the view a bit, but still beautiful. The hotel has bicycles available to take a leisurely bike ride around the area. There are some great restaurants within walking distance that have scenic views as well. I would not recommend this hotel for families or large groups due to noise concerns.

We stayed here in June for a weekend. The location is beautiful and the service was even better. All of our questions were answered promptly and everyone is very friendly. The breakfast is delicious, especially the granola! The room was clean, fresh, and well maintained. It was the perfect place for a romantic getaway.

Beautiful views of Dana Point Harbor which is the beach town after Laguna Beach. Be sure to ask for a view room with a balcony. Room 301 at the very top is worth the extra money, and was pleasantly surprised that they had champagne and chocolates waiting. Great area for walking and relaxing after you get passed the check in staff which from reading the other reviews seem to be the biggest negative. Very unfriendly and condescending toward guests. Cannons restaurant is next door which has a beautiful view as well. From 4:30 to 5:30 wine, cheese and appetizers are out. Coffee, tea, cookies and cucumber, citrus water always available in lobby. Breakfast was amazing with pancakes, bacon, boiled eggs, all kinds of bread, and juice. Reminds me of an older Cape Cod BB. Enjoyed our stay, but stayed away from desk demons.

We were really looking forward to our stay here. Frankly, it wasn't all that we had expected. The woman who checked us in (Christine?) just did not have a very warm or welcoming personality and it never really improved every time I had to deal with her. In general, the vibe is that they are doing you a favor letting you stay there. The room was very clean and nicely appointed. It was great fun being able to sit out on our balcony overlooking the partial view of the ocean. The elevator alone has an unbelievable view. The bathroom with spa tub was very nice but we had to live with the noise of the waterjets, which wouldn't turn off, for an hour until the desk clerk flipped the circuit breaker to the tub. The breakfast was underwhelming and not up to the quality we had expected. One night here was probably enough for us.

Room Tip: It's just a question of how much you want to spend.

I recently attended a work conference in Laguna Niguel and both of the "top hotels" were blocked for some reason. I found the Blue Lantern online and it was perfect. Less then 3 minutes from the host hotels, with a warm and wonderful staff. I booked room 301 which is wonderful in every way. The complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and full hot breakfast in the morning were above and beyond my expectations. Friends staying at the host hotels couldn't get over the quality of my accommodations and the fact that my full breakfast was included while theirs cost $30 a day! not to mention the free parking and cocktail hour. All this for almost half the price! I will definitely be back with the family.
